For my 40th 1930s Shanghai jazz birthday bash, I looked all over for a band with a specific sound. So glad I came across The Jazzcats' website and after hearing some sample tunes, I knew I just had to have them for my bash. From the start, the band set the ambiance for the night and got the crowd grooving. Your performance was incredible and left all our guests impressed. James was also very helpful and accommodating with our requests. The Jazzcatswill not disappoint!

James, What can I say...thank you so much for the performance your band gave at the General Pharmaceutical Council End of Year Celebration. The live jazz music just made our first staff social event that much more special. Thank you also for accommodating every request, right up to the last minute, and being just so flexible. Many members of staff have talked about how approachable you all were – particularly our two guest singers. You made our evening really special. I would recommend you all in a heartbeat for your professionalism and courtesy. Thanks again. Best wishes

Dear James, Firstly apologies for the delay in sending this - as we mentioned I was straight off on a business trip after the wedding. I just wanted to write and send our sincere thanks for the wonderful performance you and the band put on at our wedding reception. All the guests have been saying how much they enjoyed the music and what a great atmosphere you created! It was just what we wanted - with everyone enjoying themselves and getting into the spirit of it. Particular thanks for the arrangement you put together for our first dance, it made it that much more personal to have it performed live. We can't thank you enough for helping make our wedding such a success and helping everyone have a great time dancing the night away! All the best,

Jess and Mark

Dear James Just a quick email to say that the quartet you put together for my party on Saturday night was absolutely marvelous. The music gave the event incredible atmosphere and the party was completely enlivened by it. Best wishes

James just a quick note to thank you for the duo yesterday. they were so talanted and appreciated by all, especially as they had such awful weather to fit around. i hope we can book them again. thanks again!

"James and theJazzCats have played for us on several occasions and have always met our needs. The standard of musicality is extremely high and they have a huge repertoire of Jazz, Latin, Funk and popular music. Every time they have created a great ambience at our events and I would recommend the group to any venue or organisation.

Hi James, Just want to give you a BIG THANK YOU for the wonderful music last night for our corporate event. All of you are very helpful and professional and thanks for your flexibility on time. The singer is brilliant as well. The live music was even better than the demo you put on the website. The guests were really pleased with your performance as well. Thank you very much and we’ll definitely consider you for our future events. Regards,

Hi James Just another thank you to you and Sam for the fantastic music at my wedding. Everyone loved you both and you helped to make our wedding a special and very memorable day. Thanks so much - I will recommend you to everyone I know.

Love Nikki and James Shore.

The band was great and exactly what I was looking for. We will use you again in the future if the need arises. Many thanks.


Hi James, The band were fantastic and it was a great touch to the evening. I hope they were looked after by the waiters and found the food not too spicy! Will definitely keep your number for future events. Many thanks from Arun and I

James and The Jazzcats played at our wedding in June. Not only was James utterly professional in the lead up to the wedding, and helped with all the music arrangements, but everyone said that the music at the end of the ceremony was really moving and one of the best things about the day. I would recommend the Jazzcats to anyone looking for a great service, top class music and a friendly bunch of people to make your wedding go with a swing"
